No: It is not normal for you jaws or TMJ to pop when opening after wisdom tooth surgery. In order to remove wisdom teeth, the mouth is usually opened and held open widely, which may produce some irritation to the tmjs. For most patients, the popping usually resolves over a brief period of time following surgery. If it persists and you have pain, you may want to contact your dentist or surgeon.
Depends on healing: While I don't condone smoking any thing at any time as it is bad for your overall health... To answer your question. It depends on how fast you heal. If the area is completely healed then smoking pot will cause no more or less damage then it would at any other time.

NO: You can put it back in a few days after surgery. It will take longer to close, unless you just had the piercing recently and it is not full y healed.

Tips for pain relief: Any tooth extraction can be uncomfortable. The key is good home care. As soon as possible place an ice pack on your face...Even if you have to store your own ice bag in a cooler in the car. Keep ice on your face 20min on then 20 min off for the first 24 hours. Take pain meds as prescribed and limit activity. Don't suck through a straw, spit alot, slurp soup or smoke. Eat soft foods for 24 hrs.See 3 more doctor answers
It depends: There is no one experience that all patients share. Some wisdom teeth are completely or nearly erupted into the mouth and removal should be less complicated. Sometimes they are "impacted" or covered by gums and bone and are more involved. Ultimately, you should feel little or nothing during removal thanks to local anesthetic (and sedation if desired). Pain meds keep you comfortable afterward.See 2 more doctor answers

Depends: I'm assuming you mean on your lip and chin. If this is the same day as surgery, that could be local anesthetic. If it is several days later, there may have been some injury to the sensory nerve. This usually gets better on its own, but it is best to inform your surgeon as they know all about your individual situation.See 1 more doctor answer

See an oral surgeon: A mucocele is an enlarged salivary gland, usually due to obstruction of the duct that allows the saliva to empty into the mouth. They commonly occur inside the lower lip and sometimes in the floor of the mouth. An oral surgeon can perform a clinical exam with the appropriate x-rays to advise you about your wisdom teeth and provide you with additional information about the mucocele.See 2 more doctor answers
Wide opening: When wisdom teeth are removed, the mandible (lower jaw) is stretched out wider than usual for the dentist/oral surgeon to extract the teeth. Depending upon the removal process (surgical or not,) the duration of the procedure may also affect the muscles/tmj complex. I would see the dr. Who removed the teeth asap.See 2 more doctor answers
